Bullfighting Isn't Culture, It's Cruelty - The Petition Site

Every year, about 250,000 bulls are killed in bullfights -- stabbed multiple times with barbed lances and banderillas (spiked wooden sticks) before suffering slow, agonizing deaths in front of an audience, including children. 

Now, even though bullfighting attendance is at an all-time low and bans have been enacted by several countries and cities, Portugal  Spain and France are trying to protect this cruel "bloodsport" by getting it listed as a form of "cultural heritage"

Bullfights aren't "fair fights" between a bull and a matador. They're highly staged forms of animal cruelty, sanctioned and subsidized by governments. A UNESCO "cultural heritage" listing would give a veneer of respectability to the torture of animals for public entertainment and mean subsidies may be made available to financially safeguard the future of bullfighting. 

Tell UNESCO: Bullfighting isn't culture, it's cruelty.
